After we signed up for Netflix and binge-watched Marvel’s Daredevil – which, in my opinion, is the best superhero television series out there, and the best thing to come out of the Marvel Cinematic Universe so far – I was inspired to work on a Funko Pop! figure based on his “final” costume. Unfortunately, since it only shows up late […]

Off the Workbench: Mighty Muggs Miles Morales (Ultimate Spider-Man) Custom

Last year, I got so excited about Spider-Verse that I came up with a plan: To create custom Mighty Muggs of every single Spider-Man making an appearance in that story.

Off the Workbench: Funko Pop! Juggernaut Custom

I was recently contacted by a friend/client. He wanted me to customize a blank Funko Pop! figure into mega-popular X-Men foe Juggernaut.

The details were sculpted on the figure using WaterStop […]

EVER against a family of interdimensional energy vampires with a […]

I haven’t been able to do much writing or blogging lately. The demands of the day job, my never-ending BIR adventures, and the tons of emotional baggage I carry around with me like that ghost in Shutter are currently inhibiting my ability to write anything non-work-related that won’t be ripe material for a Fall Out Boy or Dashboard Confessional song.
